Work Party – Fredericton

Attention All Members – Removal of Docks at Fredericton


Saturday, October 29th at 9:00 a.m.


Please plan to attend this work party to remove the floating docks and stack them on the widened area by the mast trees.


Yard clean-up will also be performed: place rotten or damaged materials by the porta-potty for pick-up and disposal.


Please take your personal items from flood-prone areas:

  • Move your dinghy from the ramp or lawn area and store near your boat or off-site;
  • Remove your horses from the upper wharf; and
  • Retrieve your bridle from the lower wharf or shed area (if one of those that the mooring crew had to take off the moorings).

Board positions and DH committee

Board positions and DH committee
Hi everyone,

We need volunteers!

We have 3 or 4 board positions coming up in November. Specifically, we will need:

– Commodore

– Vice Commodore

– Treasurer

– Race Committee member

– [possible] Rear-Commodore Douglas Harbour


These vacancies are in important roles that we really can’t have vacant. I encourage all members to give this serious consideration. We need your involvement to make FYC work.

Related to this, we are also looking for volunteers for the Douglas Harbour committee. These individuals will help the Rear-Commodore in the maintenance and servicing of the Douglas Harbour facilities.

Please contact me if you have any questions about these positions or if you are will to volunteer.
